BNB remains strong
According to BNB’s recent data, the number of active users on the network was 4.02 million. These active users made transactions adding up to 3.67 million over the last week. One of the reasons how BNB was able to sustain users on its protocol was through its low gas fees of 0.00037 BNB.
However, despite the positive momentum on the BNBchain network, the progress of the protocol could be hindered by risky dApps.
Some suspicious activity
This week, DappBay’s Red Alarm flagged over 35 risky dApps for BNB. Unsafe dApps like -Staker Cafe, Okxo, Pepe Girl, Shiba Reward, and Maker Lending were among those identified, posing potential risks for users.
The identification of over 35 risky dApps on the BNB network by DappBay’s Red Alarm has the potential to impact BNB in several ways. Firstly, users’ trust and confidence in the BNB ecosystem may be undermined due to the presence of unsafe dApps. This could result in users being more cautious when using dApps, affecting overall adoption rates.
Moreover, the negative publicity surrounding risky dApps might influence investor sentiment, leading to fluctuations in BNB’s token value. Additionally, increased attention to these dApps could attract regulatory scrutiny, potentially impacting BNB’s standing in the market.
